No seriously with the month of love around and Valentine’s day just happening last week, I should be in love with everyone…but right now I am bugged…
For a lot of reasons…
I have given up, you know..for every guy like RD or RMB, I meet such guys (Described below) who make me go so angry that I get bugged…
Both the incidents happened on Valentine’s day…and I just feel like giving up on V day!…no I am pretty neutral to V day you know…I neither am a big fan, nor do I stop anyone from celebrating it..to each his or her own…
This guy to sits next to me…he has two kids and his wife is a prof at some college..
Pretty educated, has travelled abroad extensively..etc etc
Him: I went yesterday to buy diamonds
RM: Awwww…thats so sweet..for V day for your wife is it?
Him:yes….but they are so expensive
RM: yes they are
H: but she wants one
RM: Thats nice
H: no but I was thinking whether I should really buy it..
RM: I have heard diamonds have no re-sale value…but then they look pretty eh if you are into jewellery
H: you dont like them?
RM: I am not a big fan of jewellery
H: hmmmm…I got one for 30 K for her…
RM: Thats so sweet..what did you buy?
H: Earrings…for 30 K
RM: oh..great…did she like it
H: If she doesnt like anything thats worth 30K , I wonder what she expects..
and this is where I got bugged…I mean, why the hell do you have to crib and buy..dont buy na..simple..otherwise if you buy, enjoy the gifting!!!!
Why bring it down so cheaply to money 😦
I am walking towards the bus ..
Guy 2: Hey
RM: hey how are you?
G2: Fine fine..happy V day
RM: oh same to you..hope you are enjoying the newly married life
G2: Whats there to enjoy?
Okie and I shut up..because I dont have anything else to say
G2: So whats the plan for V Day
RM: nothing rey….kuch major nahi
G2: Well..I am sure RD will be ready with a hot cup of tea and some snacks for you by the time you reach home..poor guy what all he has to bear
RM: *takes deep breath* And you think its a problem because…..?
G2: Arey poor fellow has to put up with you…and your demands!
RM: and you dont do this to your wife
G2: Of course not, I dont do anything of this sort for the wife…she should do it na…I really pity RD
RM: looks at him angrily : Well, then I pity your wife because she will never know what is it to have a wonderful husband..
and I walk away. fuming. angry, bugged. irritated…
I mean, why why why…
both the guys are well educated, travelled across the globe and totally seemingly intelligent people..and yet 😦
I think its in the Indian blood. Thats all I can say..the way we bring up our boys to think girls have to serve them 😦
It makes me sad. All this while, I was thinking education is the key to change your thought process…but is it…? now I dont think education has ANYTHING to do with your thought process or even going around the world will ever broaden your horizons…if you are brought up in a certain way, no matter what, thats how you are going to think…I am just so bugged. Gah!
